Help !!!!!!! 156 to 162 replicas

I've bought 4 162s wheels replicas with this size:

8x17" offeset 42 (tire 25/45)

My original wheels are 156s with this size:

7x16" offeset 34 (tire 205/55)

Are my new 162s replicas ok for my e91?
Someone tells me that with different offset the wheel can touch sospension . Is it true?

That wheel was designed for your vehicle, but that offset wasn't. On the front you would need 10mm spacers and in the rear you would need at least 15mm spacers to make sure it looks good.
